    May be interested. Haven't done Dartmoor on a bike, and knowledge of it is sketchy on foot even though I grew up in south Devon. Likewise not 100% sure what's going on that day.
  • I went out for a ride on Dartmoor yesterday and it was pretty cool actually. Nothing like I've ever ridden before though. If it was dry I reckon it'd be phenomenal. I had to push up a lot of the hills because they were really boggy and very steep but at the top of every hill there seemed to be loads of really cool choices of fast trails leading down. I only did a few miles but it felt like hundreds! If the weather isn't too bad I recommend giving it a go.

    If you lived here you could get loads and loads of really cool trails going I reckon, lots of natural drop offs and gaps to be played with. I think we're leaving Thursday morning but if it changes I'm up for hooking up. Will post here Wed eve.

    Would be good. I know weather can make Dartmoor suck but seems okay at the moment.

    Otherwise see you back up by the smoke. Back new years eve or day, not sure yet, but if there's a ride on I may be back earlier.
